Do you get the waze place location or the Google POI location if you search for the waze name of the airport and select the top autofill result?

Each one with one or more photos (no other data). I'm kind of surprised I don't see this more often as the "Ask me about places" setting is on by default. If you ask someone to add a photo every time they drive home . . .

I kind of like DwarfLord's response for hostile reports regarding direction into a traffic jam. However, I report obscene or abusive URs to waze staff. Waze typically bans the user from reporting or terminates the user's waze account as they deem appropriate. Please feel free identify any obscene or abusive URs to me and I will forward them on to waze staff.

I knew it had to be in the software since we are able to exchange information, I just thought that the information was hidden from humans for legal reasons.

Somehow I would think that that for legal reasons waze would retain an ability for its own staff to curtail users who use the waze service to transmit obscene or abusive messages.

Receptive? Maybe. Make it a high enough priority that it would be likely to happen in my lifetime? I doubt it.

Yes, let's cut through somebody's parking area because lefts are illegal at the light. I'm sure that won't annoy anyone at all....

Turn not allowed (user reported)

Reported on: June 09


No amusing text here; just another user from the school of "didn't learn how to navigate traffic circles/roundabouts". User got a "At the roundabout, make a left" instruction; they were apparently confused by the one-way sign and made a right instead :roll:

Apparently this driver didn't get the memo about problem reports needing to be done on site...

I also tend to hit those immediately when I see them, as they are representative of a real problem (missing road, wrong driving direction, etc).

These are all within a 3 day span and for a variety of problems. Most of them also have no drive data. Finally, this is a residential area which increases the possibility that this is a person scrolling the map around in Waze and reporting problems from their couch.

Unfortunately, there's nothing I can really do about this without doing something like putting a road on their house telling them they're being ineffective. I guess this person is going to receive a bunch of emails about how I wasn't able to resolve their problems.....

EDIT: So there was 31 of the things there.

Idle threats!

He's got it all wrong anyway! That's Charumb Ct, not Charlund Dr. Obviously he doesn't live where he thinks he does.


Not only that, but that road has only one connection, so it should only be used by waze for destinations on that road and turnarounds.
